“Living in this physical existence we have a strong urge to associate ourselves and what we perceive ourselves to be with the physical things around us…We take on traits of the physical world letting the physical things define who we are…It becomes a trap to associate ourselves with our material surroundings, our physical body or our environment. When we worship the attributes of our physical surroundings, we are idolizing false gods.” ~ Chris W Metz, The Road Out Of The Abyss
I AM THE DECISIVE ELEMENT
I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather.
I possess tremendous power to make a life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture, or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal.
In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de –escalated, and a person humanized or dehumanized.
If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming. ~ Goethe
“Whenever you desire to have something, you may only possess it momentarily. Only when you decide to be something, does it become a part of you forever.” ~ Chris W Metz
“At the end of the day and ultimately at the end of my life, what do I myself have but the integrity of the promises I make to myself.” ~ Chris W Metz
